Sheeting and Translucents

sheetingSingle skin uninsulated may be OK for garaging, but double skin insulated is best. Composite panels on walls may be appropriate, particularly for office areas.

Translucents are cheap. It is best not to have them in the roof but as hit and miss panels all round the tops of the walls/doors. If they are used in the roof they should have galvanised wire mesh inside.



We always advise the use of masonary in place of steel sheeting in the bottom 2.1m (7') of wall. If the sheeting is lower than this then then problems can occur:

  • Expense - Many more trims and cutting of sheets for windows and doors.
  • Abrasion - Sheeting often gets bumped by factory vehicles and fork lifts etc., making the sheeting look untidy.
  • Corrosion - Sheeting may corrode if dirt and moisture builds up against it. If the sheeting ends at 2.1m above the ground then the sheeting is kept clean and dry.
  • Aesthetics - Also a masonry finish in the local stone, or brickwork gives a nice finish to the building.
  • Security - Sheeting at floor level is a security risk as people can easily burn through steel sheets with oxyacetylene torches.
  • Foresight - Masonry can be easily modified when extra personnel doors or windows are required in the future.
